Good coaches are the building blocks of great players. This is a core belief of the RYS Board of Directors. RYS wants to invest in the development of our coaches and volunteers. Per policy, we reimburse coaches 100% of their training costs (see policy in our by-laws).
New for 2014, RYS is promoting Massachusetts Youth Soccer coach training. There are 2 levels for coaches to complete. RYS encourages all coaches, assistant coaches, and any parents thinking about coaching to start by taking the “G Level” on-line training course. Our goal is to get all coaches and assistant coaches to complete this entry level course. This can be done from your home or office, on your schedule. You can complete this course at the following web site: http://www.mayouthsoccer.org/online_programs/g.aspx
Challenger Way Coaching Tool - Rutland Youth Soccer has partnered with Challenger Sports for both player and coach development. Coaches are encouraged to access the Challenger Way curriculum, drills, and practice information to increase player development and success at every practice session.
